Taboo marks another collaboration between Steven Knight and actor Tom Hardy. The BBC and FX series follows up their work together on Peaky Blinders season two and Knight’s spellbinding second feature, Locke. The dark and atmospheric trailer for their series made it look unlike any show coming out. In Knight’s opinion, there hasn’t ever been a show quite like it.
Below, Steven Knight discusses the Taboo TV series.

The past couple of years have been pretty rough on Josh Trank. After his career got off to a spectacular start with 2012’s Chronicle, he flamed out with his sophomore effort, Fantastic Four, and seemingly did himself no favors by bad-mouthing his own movie. In between, he also picked up and then lost a Star Wars spinoff. Understandably, he’s spent most of 2016 laying low.
But now it sounds like he’s finally ready to get going on a new project again. Tom Hardy has just been set to star in Trank’s next movie, Fonzo, about legendary mobster Al Capone near the end of his life. Read More »
Gavin O’Connor has directed two movies that should’ve had bigger audiences. Miracle did respectably at the box office, but that inspiring drama still felt slightly overlooked the year it came out. O’Connor’s 2011 film, Warrior, opened to positive reviews but a weak opening at the box office. The movie, which reportedly cost $25 million, made under $14 million in the States. It was a shame seeing a movie that sincere not connect, but the film has found some fans over the years. Maybe not enough fans to make a Warrior 2 a reality, but that’s not stopping O’Connor from considering a sequel.
Below, read what O’Connor had to say about a Warrior sequel.

Tom Hardy and Steven Knight are inseparable these days.

Tom Hardy is a man of many talents. Last year, he convincingly played twins, killed it as Max Rockatansky, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in The Revenant. We’re not seeing as much of Hardy this year, but we still have some upcoming projects we’re looking forward to seeing him in. He stars in Steven Knight‘s (Locke) FX series Taboo and has a supporting role in the musical London Road.

According to director George Miller, the best version of Mad Max: Fury Road is the black and white version. Unfortunately, as he said, “people reserve that for art films now.” Miller was optimistic Warner Bros. would release his ideal cut in theaters, but a theatrical run for the Mad Max: Fury Road black-and-white version never happened. We will get to one day see Miller’s preferred cut, and possibly later this year with a brand new box set.
Below, learn more about the Mad Max: Fury Road black-and-white version and a double-dip actually worth purchasing.

We’ve yet to get confirmation that Daniel Craig is done with the James Bond franchise. But considering he spent the Spectre press tour calling his character a misogynist and declaring he’d rather slash his wrists than play Bond again — and considering recent rumors that he’s turned down $100 million to reprise the role for two more films — it seems a safe assumption that he won’t be sticking around for too much longer. So the question, then, is who’ll replace him. Because Bond is eternal — the only question is what form he’ll take on next. It’ll probably be a while before we get a real answer, but in the meantime, here are some of our favorite choices. Read More »

Even though The Revenant took home plenty of awards leading up to the Oscars, and ended up earning a Best Director award for Alejandro G. Inarritu, it was Spotlight that ended up going home with the top prize, and deservedly so (Mad Max: Fury Road would have been a fine recipient as well). Thankfully Leonardo DiCaprio ended up winning Best Actor too, so all is right with the world.
The Revenant is on the way to home video next month, so now’s the perfect time for the Honest Trailer to skewer the movie that is easily described as epic Oscar bait. The movie was specifically given mercy in the Best Picture nominee round-up from Honest Trailers earlier this year, but now they’re not holding back.
